Technology has transformed many industries, including the residential inspection industry. The introduction and advancement of infrared thermography has allowed experienced and trained inspectors to detect radiation, or heat, as it comes from an object. In the inspection world, this is helpful for determining where heat might be escaping within a residential structure, which provides insights into the overall energy efficiency of the space.
Not all inspectors have the tools or training needed to perform home thermal imaging; this is an area that helps our team at PRJ Home Defenders to stand out in the industry. One of our inspectors is a certified Level II Thermographer and uses infrared thermography to detect heat as it moves through windows, doors, and other openings within a home.
The images produced in the home thermal imaging process make it possible to see heat-producing objects that aren’t visible through normal sight. In addition to testing the energy efficiency of the space, home thermal imaging has many other uses. It can detect moisture in ceilings and walls, locate the source of a plumbing leak, spot wood-destroying insects, and determine whether any electrical issues are present. Additionally, we can use this technology to assess the risk of roof leaks, review the condition of the HVAC system, and locate any potential structural defects that contribute to energy loss or other issues.
